One curious boy explored all the possible nooks of his surroundings and without even thinking, he opened the door to a cloistered room where the performance was taking place in private. In doing so, he triggered a chain reaction of interest in an unexplained phenomenon of the whole group. Every day we set up one camera in the room and a second, concealed camera, attached to a pole above the door. Then we waited for the regular arrival of boat full of tourists to the island. Coloured filters were put on the windows so it was possible to see out, but the tourists on the outside could not see in. This footage was recorded on a day when children and a teacher arrived on the island on a school trip to the museum next door.


(Note: Due to the battery running out, the camera placed in the room turned itself off, although the microphone kept recording. )

"Attraction" is a part of the "POOL Project Series", which deals with post-clown manifestation. The project outcomes are diverse and are always based on the context of the place where it is presented.
